About Dan

I have over 20 years of experience managing factories for multi-national manufacturing companies, as well as managing large (100-person) globally distributed software development teams writing manufacturing software.

I've done extensive research on the competition and capabilities within the $2.2 billion manufacturing execution system software space. Coupled with deep hands-on experience, I'm intimately familiar with the problems and limitations manufacturers face with existing products. I'm convinced the industry is ready for change!

I'm building a next-generation manufacturing management platform, based in the Cloud and integrating Analytics, Mobility and Collaboration as core capabilities on a foundation of consumer-grade user interfaces -- all surprisingly neglected characteristics within the manufacturing space.

Sound interesting?
I'm looking to partner with someone with strong B2B SaaS marketing and business development skills who can also lead initial fundraising efforts -- someone who can sell what we build and help drive company growth.

Momentum is on our side. Let's connect and explore the possibilities!
